Factory-provided artifact bundles

Always use the latest artifacts that are available at https://github.com/HewlettPackard/image-streamer-tools. However, if you lack access to the Internet, use factory-provided artifact bundles available in the Image Streamer appliance.

The foundation and support artifact bundles are automatically created for a new Image Streamer appliance and after a factory reset of the appliance.

The factory-provided artifact bundles are created while creating the OS deployment server on the primary Image Streamer appliance. You can view the factory-provided artifact bundles on the Artifact Bundles screen after creating an OS deployment server using HPE OneView.
Foundation bundle

The foundation artifact bundle consists of artifacts that enable you to perform basic Image Streamer operations. Basic Image Streamer operations include creation of an empty OS volume, deployment of operating systems without any personalization, and capture of operating systems.

Support bundle

The support artifact bundle consists of artifacts that enable you to validate deployment and capture features of the Image Streamer appliance using a sample Golden Image.

The sample Golden Image (HPE - Support 1.0 - UEFI Test Image - <date>) provided in the Support artifact bundle requires UEFI support.

The factory-provided artifact bundles are read-only and are not extracted automatically. To use the default artifacts, extract the factory-provided artifact bundles. Factory-provided artifact bundles remain unaffected by a factory reset operation. During an appliance upgrade, the existing factory-provided artifact bundles are replaced, if the upgrade includes a newer version of the factory-provided artifact bundles.
